Panic buying and hoarding. I just watched a video on the production of .22 ammo at the CCI plant. Ready for this, they make 4 million rounds a day. Somebody is buying a lot of ammo.
Anybody have any stock in a gun or ammo companie should have a nice gain in value.

Lot of people doing a lot of unnecessary buying. Some hear there's a shortage and go looking to buy some even though they don't need it.

WAM's right. Everytime I say it I get a bunch of -1s but he's absolutely right! I went to the local gun store a week ago; there were over sixty people in a lottery to by the four (4) ARs the store had! I've now seen everything!

Panic buying is one cause, but so is the inevitable price increase.

Safado- by the sounds of it, your local gun store owner is too smart of a business man to be caught making a deal with. Auctioning off the rights to purchase something for probably near double it's original value... Ingenious...

22 LR has always been a good deal. Its so inexpensive people can hoard it easily even on a limited budget.

My local Gander Mountain store has a good variety of .22LR ammo in stock, but no CCI Green Label ammo, which is what I want. I can wait until the panic subsides.

99explorer - I have 100 rounds of CCI Green Tag...perhaps we can make a trade because in my neck of the woods I can't find any high velocity rounds.

Zombies.- Seriously. It is the preferred bullet for people who go to the range to practice their Zombie shooting skills. Rem 36grain JHP is starting to show up. Just picked a box yesterday.

Panic? Hysteria? Stupidity? Caution? Fear? Greed? Lots of emotions at play here.

I just got back from WalMart in Ohio. No .22lr, .223, 9mm,.45acp .308, 30-30. They did have some .40s&W and 2 bx .380. All purchases limited to 3 box/day.
The also had .17hmr and .22mag.
Large caliber center fire except those mentioned seemed to be a good supply.
Shotgun seemed to have an array of everything although no large quantity of any one type.
